Free Hotel #2- Port Douglas, Australia

  I talked about Port Douglas in my previous post so I'll share with you our excellent hotel find here as well! Finding cheap hotels in expensive cities isn't difficult, but it does require some research and asking around.  As a result, you end up saving hundreds, sometimes thousands, and find some great deals on hotels you may have never heard of before!  

  I stumbled upon this hotel on an Expedia search, I believe, and the prices were listed anywhere between $90-$170 a night.  It's crazy how different each site will report a rate!  Curtis found a coupon code for Expedia and ended up getting the rate down to $84 a night, score!  It's in the heart of Port Douglas, walking distance from shops, bars and restaurants and 2 blocks from Four Mile Beach.  (where I told Curtis our meeting spot should be since that's where I'll be if he can't find me, haha!)  I present to you the Mercure Treetops Resort.

The pool.  I'll be at the beach.
Well appointed and clean rooms!
I do believe that is a fine place to dine!

 It has great reviews all over and it's location makes it a true steal in the city of $300 hotel rooms. :)  And the hotel looks really nice!  An excellent find that we're looking forward to spending some time at. :)  And best of all:

How We Did It: Capital One Travel Reimbursement: $170
Would Have Cost: $170
Total Cost We Pay: $0!
